Updating my video card driver
The general rule of thumb for graphic card display drivers is "if it ain't broken, don't fix it".
When NVIDIA releases a new product, over time software developers learn more about the architecture, and are able to gain better performance from this architecture through updated drivers.
If your NVIDIA based graphics card is a newer model, it is recommended that you update your graphic card drivers regularly to get the best performance and experience from your PC.If it is successful, you’ll be told your card is up to date or that it needs updated, otherwise it’ll tell you that the scan could not be completed.In the event that the scan fails, go back and follow their five-step process to pinpoint your exact video card drivers. One thing I’ll never recommend is that you go about using automated software like Slim Drivers or Driver Magician.Let’s start by going to your Control Panel and then to Device Manager.From there, you’d going to want to click on the Display adapters header to expand the tree. However, in respect to that note about not trusting automated software earlier, we aren’t going to listen to Windows. So, now that we’ve figured out what kind of video card you have, let’s proceed on our quest. lang=en-us You’ll then see the following near the bottom. I’d recommend using Internet Explorer while running this automated check because it tends to handle Active X and browser plugins a little better than most browsers (surprisingly). Afterwards, you’ll either be presented with a screen telling you that you need updated drivers or that your drivers are up to date, or that the automated check failed.
I was wondering whether I really need to update my graphic card drivers.
